Live Distribution of the Year


A new category this year. What distribution do you think is best suited for a live environment?

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: CentOS at the time of this writing, but some others over the years too...

I voted for SystemRescueCD, but if I wanted to browse the Internet, and I was worried about my "privacy" I'd probably go Tails instead.

Knoppix was the first one I used too many years ago to remember, seemed incredible at the time and still pretty nice the last time I checked.

Long Live Knoppix!

antiX - you can run it live from a stick or frugal install to a 'hard-drive' with or without persistence and remaster the whole lot if you like.

Live Distribution of the Year: SystemRescueCd

Thankfully, I've never had to use it but I keep it along with Knoppix in my toolbox.

Slackware Live Edition saved my day a couple of times last year. It's basically a full Slackware-current install on a DVD (or USB stick), which has all the recovery tools I need plus a full set of desktop software.

Well done!

Really agree with you, and thanks for a link! Also it does not have systemd and that matters a lot to me

The first time I ever used GNU/Linux was on a live Knoppix CD around 2007. I still love using Knoppix as a live CD.

I like Grml, but...

I think the poll is missing PuppyLinux?

Knoppix was my first live-boot (started using it around the mid-version 3's around 2004 I think), and I would still say Knoppix to this day.
